CHS Experience

The UK College of Health Sciences is one of a kind, and we know you are too. At the UK College of Health Sciences (UK CHS), students receive a career-focused education in a one-of-a-kind environment. Education is not limited to the classroom, as UK CHS students have opportunities to be involved in every aspect of our mission. The integration of contemporary research and service is an inseparable component of the educational experience at UK CHS. Our students receive a robust education and an experience, which includes interprofessional, innovative learning opportunities, as well as the chance to go beyond the classroom with hands-on patient-care, research, service, and study-abroad opportunities.  

While delivering a world-class education is a top priority for UK CHS, a student is never “just a number” to us. We value each student as an individual. Students recognize this the moment they walk through our door and thrive in the close-knit atmosphere at UK CHS.

The most promising part of an education at UK CHS is the outcome. Our undergraduate programs are the gateway to the health sciences, and our students graduate as career-ready professionals, entering health care fields that are in high demand. We invite you to see for yourself. Email us or explore the program websites below to find out more.  

UK CHS offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as minor and certificate options:


These undergraduate programs are selective admissions programs. Students are formally accepted into these programs after completing respective pre-requisite requirements as well as an application process (information can be found at each program's webpage above).

Incoming first-year students may apply for UK admissions and be admitted as a "pre-major" (e.g. Pre-CSD, Pre-MLS, etc.). Current or transfer students with relatively low hours and certain GPA marks may be eligible to apply to become a pre-major on a case-by-case basis.

While advising appointments highlight each programs respective application process as well as advice on how to be a competitive candidate, it is the responsibility of the student to understand all application requirements as well as to navigate their program's process.

Incoming CHS Students: Live & Learn @ UK! Get more info on the Interprofessional Healthcare Residential College (IHRC or iRock).


Doctoral Program:


It is the responsibility of each applicant to make sure that they have completed all parts of their respective program's application and (if applicable) Graduate School requirements.

The Graduate School has established its own standards for acceptance; in all cases our programs have competitive standards which are higher. However, anyone eligible for admission to the Graduate School will receive consideration for our programs.
